Description: 52 minutes of sacred works for mixed choir (and a couple for just the female voices), demonstrating Mendessohn's inability to completely separate the concert hall from the church (all to the good!) and a selection of the sort of part-songs which have been a staple of choirs in German-speaking lands for 200 years now except, again, Felix wrote these for mixed voices instead of for men alone. German-English texts. Regensburger Domspatzen; Georg Ratzinger. Original 1995 release.
